Corazon, this is the only time I recall seeing Diana wear this necklace. Ayvee is saying that it was really made up (at least partly) of two identical bracelets that Diana had. (see one of the bracelets below)

PrincessDianafan,
Were your latest photos taken at Liza Minnelli's Sammy Davis Jr. tribute concert? That was in London, I think in June 1992.

Thanks Princessdianafan70 and Umbrellagirl,

I took the photos at the Royal Opera House at Covent Garden on the 26th May. I remember she wore the same outfit for the Liza Minelli/Sammy Davis event. Were you there then?

Was I there? Golly, no, I've just seen photos. I'll have to check on that Royal Opera House event in May; I don't remember that one. You may have just added a new event, documented with photos, to my Diana knowledge.

Thanks so much.

PrincessDianafan (and all pic posters)
Would you be able to include the event, place and date as a heading in future pic posts?
It makes it easier to identify and put the images in context, and saves members having to ask. Thanks.

I am new to the forums but am enjoying all the wonderful pictures. I have been searching for many years for photo's taken of Diana on June 15, 1987 at the Royal Albert Hall in London. I was in attendance of the performance of Verdi's Requiem and was able to go to the reception afterward. Diana was wearing a pale pink or peach, scoop necked, sequined gown. I believed designed by the Emmanuels. There's a photo of her wearing the dress in Debrett's Illustrated Fashion Guide (she wore same dress in 1984/85 to Starlight Express)but I would love to see any more from that night. She attended the Garter Ceremony earlier in the day. If anyone can find more photos I'd be thrilled. Thank you for all the great postings!

Welcome to the Forums, smg9295! I hope I can help. I've found a photo of that pale peach dress in a 1989 book. I'm not sure if it's the correct occasion. The caption says only "A dual-fabric number for another visit to the Royal Opera House" (not the Royal Albert Hall). No date or event mentioned.

Thank you! Yes, that is the dress and I believe that is the evening I saw her. It was definately at the Royal Albert Hall as I still have the program and will never forget the evening. However, that is the only photo I have ever seen of her that night and I would love to see more. I bought a paper the next day and that was the photo they printed. I can't imagine that's the only one that exists. She was so pretty and when she stood up in the balcony for the anthem she literally glowed and sparkled in that sequined gown. At the reception I stood about five feet away as she talked to the performers and she made eye contact with me for a second. I was the only other person in the room that was near her age - just a couple years younger. I was told by the people I was with that you do not approach royalty but I wish I'd said hello.

smg9295,
I was sure that you would not have forgotten exactly where you were that night, so I suspected that the caption was wrong. What an exciting night that must have been for you, to be so near to Diana and even make eye contact. It's too bad that you couldn't have spoken to her, but still -- what a cherished memory it must be.

I'm sorry that the photo I found is one you've already seen. I think the only other pictures I have of that dress were from Starlight Express. Maybe someone else has another -- or more than one? -- from the Verdi's Requiem occasion which they can post.

But I have to thank you. Now I know when that photo I posted was taken. I'm always happy to be able to assign an exact date to a Diana photo.
